The Savage Dawn
The Savage Dawn by Melissa Grey is the final book of The Girl at Midnight Series.
The war between light and dark has begun. The sides have been chosen and the battle lines drawn.
After awakening the firebird, Echo is now the only one with the power to face the darkness she unwittingly unleashed upon the world…right into the waiting hands of Tanith, the new Dragon Prince. Tanith has one goal in mind: destroy her enemies, raze their lands, and reign supreme in a new era where the Drakharin are almighty and the Avicen are nothing but a memory.
The war that has been brewing for centuries is finally imminent. But the scales are tipped. Echo might hold the power to face the darkness within the Dragon Prince, but she has far to go to master it. And now she’s plagued by uncertainty. Is she strong enough to stare into the face of evil and not lose herself in its depths?
The war has begun, and there is no looking back. There are only two outcomes possible: triumph or death.
1. I was so excited for the final book of this series. I wanted to see how Grey dealt with the ideas of light and dark in a battle. It was definitely interesting to watch how Echo and Tanith made their moves in this book, but I was disappointed with the ending in general.
2. I found it fascinating and horrifying seeing Tanith's consumption by the kucedra. While she was never a likable character, and had harshness to her. The kucedra really makes her lose herself to madness, and become horrifying monster.
3. I have to say the couple I definitely ship the hardest in this book is Dorian and Jasper. I love them together, and I definitely squeezed my book in delight when they had their break through relationship moment. I was happy with how their story concluded.
4. So now back to my disappointment in the story. I felt that Grey left some pretty big issues unresolved. My biggest complaint is Helios and Ivy's story. It just felt like she presents this big issue and never comes back and finishes it. Plus, I was just not a fan of the ending in general. I was like seriously that is it.
To Read or Not to Read:
Read, despite the ending.
